Social media users across different parts of the world prayed for the swift recovery of Maulana Tariq Jamil.
It is important to note that this is the second time in 2020 that Maulana Jamil is suffering from health issues. Previously in June 2020, he fell in his home and injured his face. But with the prayers of his followers, he soon made a recovery.
Also in 2017, during his tour in Canada, a video was uploaded on all of Tariq Jamil‘s social media accounts explaining that he had to cancel his bayans in Canada. This was because he was suffering from a severe headache. Further, he requested everyone to pray for his quick recovery.
